Hotels in Castlebar
The town of Castlebar in the west of Ireland is home to some of the region's most historic sights, boasting a rich religious heritage and numerous churches. It is also a haven for walkers looking to experience the mythic Irish countryside, and plays host to a renowned walking festival. In more recent years, it has become a thriving cultural hub for the local region, offering hospitality and activities in equal measure.
A diverse religious and military history
One of the first things you will notice upon arrival in Castlebar is the number of churches dotted around. With Church of Ireland, Roman Catholic and evangelical denominations represented, there is much here to interest students of religion. If you venture a little way out of the town, to the village of Balintubber, you will find Balintubber Abbey – rumoured to be the only church founded by an Irish King still in use today. Built in 1216, the abbey nevertheless boasts a number of modern additions, including a museum.
Castlebar translated means 'Barry's castle', so it's not surprising to learn that the ruins of the 13th-century de Barry Castle lay in the town on Castle Street. Indeed, the military heritage in Castlebar is a strong one, being the site of the famous 'Races of Castlebar' during the 1798 Irish Rebellion. This was a comprehensive victory for the Irish and French forces, who were outnumbered by the opposing British by about three to one.
A must for walkers at all levels
Castlebar is set in some of the most beautiful countryside Mayo county has to offer. As such, it has always been a popular walking destination, and the International 4 Days' Walks Festival has become a national institution since its founding in 1967. Attracting people from all over the world, the 2015 walks range between 10 and 20 kilometres per day, taking in the rivers, mountains and crags of the region. Of course, this intensive pace is not for everyone, and you are free to explore the area whenever and however you want.
A jewel in the crown for culture and hospitality
If you would like to learn more about Castlebar and the surrounding area during your stay, the Museum of Country Life just a few miles outside of the town promises a thoroughly educational look at what life was like for local people in years gone by. In terms of present day offerings, the Linenhall Arts Centre features a packed programme of theatre, music, visual arts and more – pop in and see what's going on during your visit.
